PATTULLO Bridge will be closed to traffic overnight on Thursday, December 8 from 10 p.m. until 5 a.m.

TransLink says the closure is necessary to test the Seismic Early Warning and Wind Monitoring System on the bridge.

The bridge will remain open to pedestrians, cyclists, and first responders in both directions at all times. 

This work is part of an annual inspection to ensure the Pattullo Bridge continues operating safely and reliably for bridge users. 

Date closure begins Time Direction closed

Pattullo Bridge users are encouraged to take the Port Mann or Alex Fraser bridges as alternatives.

N19 NightBus trips affected by the closure will be rerouted over the Alex Fraser and Queensborough bridges between New Westminster and Scott Road stations. Customers should plan for up to 30 minutes of additional travel time.
